Dr. Sahia was fine. The supporting staff not so much. I tested positive for a drug I have never heard of or taken in my life. I had to look it up on the internet to know what it was. I was treated like a junkie when I had trouble urinating and barked at when I asked if I could come back in an hour rather than explaining why I couldn't. I was repeatedly told I had a contract for years but was never shown a contract until June 2018 years after I started treatment. I call and no one calls back for days. I was reprimanded for taking a med they prescribed me a year ago that I had left over and taken to monthly appointments rather than quarterly even though it was their med and their prescription. Never told me Feds changed the guidelines they had been using. Something should have been mailed to all patients that were on those combinations because not everyone listens to CNN or gets copies of what they are given from the FDA.

The staff and Dr. Sahai were courteous and cheerful in their interactions with me. My wait time was reasonable. Once triaged, I was seen very quickly. Dr. Sahai was thorough in making sure I was satisfied with the recent treatments and the continued treatment plan. My appointments are always a pleasant experience.

Dr. Sahai is the best. I would recommend her to anyone who is dealing with pain. One of the friendliness doctors I have ever met. My only complaint is that I checked in online and then had to fill out a one-page form asking for all of my insurance and address information again at the office.

I paid to Uber to this appointment only for them to say they didn’t have me down despite my confirmation email. They did not apologize and expected me to wait 4 hours until their next opening. Not a 5 star office and has horrible customer service. Save yourself a trip and do not waste your money here! Horrible front desk girls both of them.

I was treated like a junkie. My UA came out positive for using Benzos. I didn't use any Benzos. My pharmacist said that Zoloft could cause a false-positive result for use of Benzos. The doctor said no and said urine doesn't lie. She has accused me of aquiring Benzos illegally. Wrong!

It was definitely less than satisfactory. Dr Sahai ignored the medical documents that i brought in, and tried to recommend steps that i advised were already taken. She did everything but call me a liar directly. When a doctor tells you that your symptoms are not concerning because they don't require surgery leaves a bad taste. She acknowledged that I have arthritis in both of my knees and refused to even prescribe a refill for arthritis creme. When a doctor looks at the outward appearance instead of trying to help is disappointing

My visit with Dr. Shimula Sahai was very well. She took the time to listen and gave me answers to my questions. I felt like she understood me as well as my goal to either get off my current medication or at least be able to decrease it. I'm very satisfied with how she handled my situation and my needs.
